Hi,

I have a 1m80 prime focus antenna with 13K LNB and a corotor for circular and linear polarisations.
On 5 W & 11W, I have good signals.

I was wandering is someone can pick-up the 4171 R S/R 30000 on 8W in the same region of Belgium, South of England,
and so one. Here nothing. Strange, as the Eutelsat site footprint shows a 38/39 dBW for Belgium.

Thank you,
Denis

I have a lock and decent signal on 3989 R SR: 30000 8W. Footprints are not always realiable.

What about Intelsat 11 at 43.1W. Someone has some locks on the European footprint ?

Thanks,
Denis

Hi - Do you mean 3889 R SR: 30000 8W. ... RFI Radio channels ? --- that one locks fine ...
also 3 or 4 other transponders ... the strongest being 3826 H 4597 Lesotho Television at 11.7 db ... can you see that one ?

Will have a look at 43.1W later ...

On the 8West 4171 R signal i can max out at 7.5dB from the 2.2 PF but just under lock .... The sun is blazing down on the lnb at the moment, i'll try it again when the sun drops and the electronics cool off a bit. Freq 3889 R locks ok and is 7.5dB with me.
Not tried 43West as yet.

A handful of transponders from 43 west here on 1.8 channel master offset ... including one that seems to be a cricket feed.
( please ignore the time and date the F15 is having a moment of madness :) )

Thanks to all.

With the 1m80 PF and a Ariva 252 Combo, I have about the same locks as you do :

5W - 3646 - R - 2170
5W - 3652 - R - 2018
5W - 3727 - R - 29950
5 W - 4054 - R - 1835
8W - 3889 - R - 30000
11W - 3662 - R - 10808

(screen shots will be posted shortly)
@ nelson_b : for 43.1 W, according to Lyngsat footprint, you seem out of reach.
I'll try later on Intelsat 11 as I should get here a EIRP of 38,5 dBW. But have
to move the antenna on the other side of the house... my neigbourd in right in
the middle of the path. EL: 17 degrees.

Hi - @telspace -
Indeed - most transponders "are" out of reach for me on that sat ... its not one i normally bother with for that reason ... Quite surprised with blind search to catch the ones i did .... maybe the good weather here is helping me :) ...... may get a few more with manual - input /scan .. will have another look later.
Regards.
